Good morning LJ’s, Last night we ( my co-workers and myself) Celebrated the retirement of My good friend and Business adviser Mrs.Sheila. To most of us it was a happy time however I hope I don’t sound stingy but it was a sad time for me :(Sheila was special to me as she was the only one who bought chairs from me this year, give me free Business advice she had gathered from her late husband who ran a construction business, and always a great person when I needed a person to ta...

Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane

10-09-2010 06:21 AM by Rahm_of_the_Woods | 9 comments »

I have recently acquired a Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane. The guy who sold it to me thought it was from the 1950’s and said it belong to his father. I was suspicious of this so I read a type study on Stanley tools. From the specific stamping and style of manufacturing of this specific plane, I believe it to be one of the models produced from 1876-1880. It looks like this plane probably came from my friends great-grandfather, not his father!!! Any idea what this tool might be worth? I know...

Looking for Hygrometer and Barometer

10-09-2010 06:02 AM by wichle | 2 comments »

I am looking for a Barometer and Hygrometer to build a desk-top widget. Woodcraft sells instruments for this kind of project. BUT! They are too small. I am looking for round instruments that are 3” in diameter with an added mounting flange around the circumference about a quarter inch in width. I would like the instrument to protrude from the mounting no more than three eights of an inch. Any sources??

Giving Stanley a 2nd chance...

10-09-2010 05:51 AM by Rick Boyett | 7 comments »

Some of you might have read my review on the Stanley Sweetheart no 9 1/2 block plane. I wasn’t very kind and rightfully so. The plane had great promise but was totally ruined by bad quality control.. But a few days ago I read David Craig’s very positive review of the no 60 1/2 block plane which was downright glowing. I also read a blog entry by Woodworking Magazines editor Christopher Schwartz in which he stated he was in the beginning stages of testing an improved version o...

Safety poem by Don Merrell

10-09-2010 04:35 AM by whiskeyturner | 1 comment »

I COULD HAVE SAVED A LIFE THAT DAYI could have saved a life that day, But I chose to look the other way. It wasn’t that I didn’t care, I had the time, and I was there.But I didn’t want to seem a fool, Or argue over a safety rule. I knew he’d done the job before, If I spoke up, he might get sore.The chances didn’t seem that bad, I’d done the same, He knew I had. So I shook my head and walked on by, He knew the risks as well as I.He took the chance, I closed ...

Extremely Average #272: Is tonight's blog about woodworking?

10-09-2010 04:28 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello LJ’s, Sadly it isn’t. I am still without computer, and as such, am not at home with my tools. So I have written the best blog about a relative’s guinea pig, that I have ever written. Brian

Yeah, they’re bracelets. Using wood from my apple tree again. But more importantly, what do you wish you were?

I’ll just post up some pics here…nice and quick..and easy..thanks Martin. The next event was another Wine Fest in Honesdale PA on Sept 26. Another wonderful day. Although we did not sell as much as we did at the craft show, Brandy and I still had a great time. This Wine Fest mixed the Craft Ve...

Woodworkers Source Online Order

10-08-2010 08:14 PM by SouthpawCA | 10 comments »

I have a smallish vehicle, consequently when I need wood I cannot always just run out and buy a number of board feet and fit it in the car. That’s where online ordering comes in handy. I’ve ordered from Woodworkers Source a few times in the past and have been happy with what I received each time. This time I’d thought I’d share with you how my order arrived. Woodworkers Source has a sale on now (I always try to catch their sales) on all exotics. If you order one...

totally off topic -just reaching out-

My well quit working. As my home in the city is in the process of foreclosure, i feel very compelled to beg my father to let me move to his nearby land that i frequent. This would mean transitioning to a more permanent state of simplicity and sustenance living (which i actually crave to attempt, as i feel the stressors involved in my current social climate and lifestyle are reducing me to a blithering idiot with the onset of subsequent health issues nearing daily). -Only, last weekend th...
